The Concert of the Century

This is the promotional advertisement for the "Concert of the Century" that took place at the Second Avenue Theater in New York City celebrating the twenty fifth anniversary of the Choir Leaders Association.  Pictured are: Cantors Moshe Koussevitsky, David Koussevitsky, Ben-Zion Kapov-Kagan, Pierre Pinchik, Berele Chagy, Leibele Waldman, Yosef Edelson and Moshe Oysher.

The Choir Leaders pictured are: Ben Friedman, Max Pincus, Samuel Sterner, Louis Friedman, Herman Zalis, Reuven Kazimirsky and Meyer Machtenberg. Needless to say, this was a big treat for all lovers of Chazzanut. I know of two books that were written about this concert.  Incidentally, Cantors Chagy and Pinchik did not show up.
